The RC F GT3 Concept sports the most powerful V8 engine from Lexus.

The Lexus RC F GT3 Concept made its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show, signaling Lexus' intent to support GT3 Sports Car racing in 2015.

4705mm long, 2000mm wide, 1270mm high and with a wheelbase of 2730mm, it is wider and lower than standard RC F road car. 

It weighs just 1,250 kg and comes with a modified RC F V8 developing 532bhp.

Jointly developed by Lexus International and its subsidiary Techno Craft, and built by the latter in Japan, the RC F GT3 concept is based on the new RC F coupe, the most powerful V8 performance car yet developed by Lexus.

Testing will begin this year, with a view to supporting sports car racing teams participating in 2015 GT3 racing categories.
